Jon Rowe snapped two mysterious shapes in the water while he was photographing a rainbow.

"There was a rainbow so I got my camera out to take a photo and noticed this really large dark shape in the loch with two humps that were barely out of the water," he said. Moments after Rowe had taken the picture the strange creature descended out of sight.

"Mr Rowe has dismissed claims that the shapes he saw in the water were not the legendary beast of the deep said to stalk the atmospheric Highland loch."

Good post Skookum! - although I personally never gave all that much credence to the Surgeon's photo. It's like the Ness equivalent of the Bigfoot shot by Patterson: too sensational and overblown too elucidate anything.Once something becomes iconic, the truth gets lost along the road. My favourite shot is the satellite picture discovered by a security guard a few years ago. This shows an outline of an apparent creature nearby a cruise ship.It is all the more compelling because it was found rather than deliberately taken. It has never been explained as far as I know.(It's probably on this site s... [More]

(never, incidentally, rely on Wikipedia as your ONLY source of information: Rule One in any serious research!) You say that like the information was false.

It could be anything, really. There isn't much scale to work with, is there? It could be fish, rocks, garbage in the water...Nessie would be close to the bottom of the list of possibilities.

The only real evidence that can be used at Loch Ness is the sonar findings... and they're inconclusive. The better, and later, sonar scans don't find the same shapes earlier did, and sonar can represent schools of fish as large objects. It's worth noting to that the geology of Loch Ness doesn't support the idea of caves, and intense mappings of the Loch have not revealed any caves. Many sightings seem to be of phantom waves, caused by the wedge shape of the lake reflecting boat wake back up to the surface. (Similar to another famous glacier lake Lake Champlain, where similar sightings occur.) ... [More]

Looking at the famous surgeons photo it amazes me how quickly we accept something is a fake. I mean the person who took the picture and was there never said it was a fake, yet anybody who comes forward after and claims fake it is case closed. This just shows how the odds are of finding evidence are against you. Not only will you be ridiculed from the beginning you will have armies of people trying to reconstruct a situation to make you out to be a liar. Once you die that is it, only one person has to come forward and say you told them you faked it and then it becomes concrete proof. It is a sh... [More]

Hi skookum, I thought the surgeon's photo was pretty well debunked as a swimmer with arm raised. Interesting/Fun thread guys. I remember all the sonar work on Loch Ness and the controvercy surrounding much of it. cheers zedNuts, revisiting the mysteries of his youth. The picture they show is just a zoom in of the whole picture. When you see the whole thing it looks far more compelling. You get some scale on it. The people who have reconstructed it have only done a picture showing a small piece of water like the zoomed in version we are always shown. when you see the whole picture it is not nea... [More]

If he was taking a picture of the rainbow, why isn't it centered in the picture???

Nessie was first spotted by the Vikings - Celtic and Norse folklore has stories of water horses seen in the lochs. The first written account of a meeting with Nessie seems to be that of Adamnan in 565 A.D. He describes St. Columba's sighting of a very large monster in Loch Ness.
